The first two paragraphs of the above cited:
An astonishing mist-shrouded "lost world" of previously unknown and rare animals and plants high in the mountain rainforests of New Guinea has been uncovered by an international team of scientists.
Among the new species of birds, frogs, butterflies and palms discovered in the expedition through this pristine environment, untouched by man, was the spectacular Berlepsch's six-wired bird of paradise. The scientists are the first outsiders to see it. They could only reach the remote mountainous area by helicopter, which they described it as akin to finding a "Garden of Eden".
{Changed topic title from "nice discovery" to "Scientists hail discovery of hundreds of new species in remote New Guinea", which is the title of the cited article. Also added the quote box material. - Adminnemooseus}

just a heads up
Guess I should have put something more, but it's not a debate topic; hence the Coffee House (yea, I know some things are debated here, but this is just a neat story).

creationism too
....which is strong evidence of evolution
Which is strong evidence for creationism as well. It certainly is not exclusive evidence for ToE and universal common descent.

Re: creationism too
Matthew, you miss the point if you are making that statement. The fact things evolve is not particularly good evidence for "evolution", which is the theory of universal common descent, the microbe to man story (myth?).

Re: creationism too
Wrong. It is intellectually dishonest, but not at all surprising for evos to make such false claims as indentifying "heritable change" as "evolution" and yet refer to "universal common descent" as evolution as well. It's dishonest. If you didn't know before, you do now.
Deal with it.
